Do you want your state to move backwards? Didn't think so.
Fortunately for the good citizens of Maryland and Virginia, your very different governors feel exactly the same way.
Both have used strikingly similar language in recent days to boldly proclaim that they will make sure the gears of government stay shifted into the drive position.
"At the heart of what I pledge to you today is the desire to keep Virginia moving forward," the commonwealth's new Democratic Gov. Timothy M. Kaine promised to soggy celebrants at his swearing-in Saturday in Williamsburg.
Maryland Rep. Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich Jr. echoed the sentiments in an email yesterday thanking supporters for the more than $10 million they've raised for his tough reelection battle this fall. "Together we are making incredible progress and because of your support, we will continue to move Maryland forward," Ehrlich wrote.
Kaine and Ehrlich don't know each other very well. Perhaps they could meet up over at forwardtogetherpac.com, the website of the political action committee former Virginia. Gov. Mark R. Warner has set up to further his political ambitions. There, they could read together recent Warner speeches such as "Keep Virginia Moving Forward" and "Let Us Move Forward Together."
